Those dreamy light rays though🙌🏻😍 Snapped a few pics then just stood here and watched them slowly fade away. Light and shadows are so fascinating in the mountains. I love the way they create so many layers.
Sorry, plethora of Poppy shots. It’s just that Poppy was killin’ it in the Cute and Funny categories today.. First 3 are Poppy simply waiting for a cookie.. and then sitting in the car with a ridiculous look on her face. Then that one where she looks so uncomfortable but she just HAD to take a sit-and-think on some uneven rocks at Lake Winnemucca, and yawning during a quick photo shoot, and falling adorably asleep on the ride home.. #poppyseconds#ourthirddog
#lakewinnemucca you had me at the first wildflower. 🌸🌱🌺 I’ve been in a four year long love affair with these beauties and their vast peaks. There’s an innate pull to be in them, to know them, and dream of them later. It’s a resetting like I’ve never experienced before. Those who were there today know. #beautifulcalifornia#sierranevadas 🏞
PCT | Miles 1070-1092 | Carson Pass :: Last night Jared threw me a piece of bread that hit a tree and landed in the middle of us. A standoff ensued and with neither of us willing to get out of our tents to get the piece of bread it remained in no mans land. Fast forward to 4am and I awake to Jared yelling “Brent, there’s something big outside our tents”. I look out and it’s a deer trying to get the bread. Scared the bejesus out of us lol. :: Today is the second day in a row with the definition of a beautiful summer day. 78 degrees, blue skies with a slight breeze. The terrain has been stunning with sweeping views of the valleys and mountains beyond. :: Trail Magic! First from a couple section hiking that had an extra “Stroople Waffle” and then again from the Carson Pass visitors center. After a soda and some fresh fruit we pushed another 5 miles to shower lake. :: Sitting 8 miles out of Lake Tahoe Jared’s phone has one bar of service. We decided to go for a Hail Mary and called our good friend Michi who just happened to recently purchase a VROB. Touchdown! We just happened to come on the day inbetwwen it being rented. :: We packed up and made the final push into town just before dusk. Arriving at her place we threw our laundry in, jumped in the hot tub, jumped in the pool and then straight to the steam room. Another ending to a perfect day. :: Thank god too. My air mattress now has 12 small holes in it and I was not looking forward to another night on the cold ground. Time for a new pad! :: #carsonpass#pct2019#pct#pacificcresttrail#thruhike#thruhiking#hikertrash#hiking#backpacking#ultralight#sectionhike#lasher#lash#outdoors#pctig#trekthepct
